    Rear windows fogging

    Hi, I just purchased a 2016 fabia 1.2 colour edition; I`m really happy so far but I noticed the rear windows and rear glass fog up really easily and fast. Is there a known defect with the seals in the rear? Or any known defect that can lead to it?
    Cheers

    No common fault I know of, check the floor and boot area for dampness. Are you running the air con all the time?

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    Modern VAG cars seem to mist up very easily, running the AC, especially in recirculation, dehumidifies the interior. Not running the AC can lead to the system drying out and losing its gas so when you want it, it won't work. The system used on your car has a variable displacement compressor and uses very little fuel when running lightly.

    check that you haven't blocked the exahust vent - in the hatchback its at the rear base of the luggage compartment, easy to see with the carpet cut outs. Easy enough to block the vent
